Company news

Investment summary

Canadian General Investments (CGI) is a Canadian investment corporation, providing investors with a broad exposure to primarily Canadian, but also selected US, equities. Manager Greg Eckel suggests the company may be considered a ‘one-stop shop’ for investment in Canada. CGI has a positive investment track record; it has outperformed its benchmark S&P/TSX Composite index over one, three, five and 10 years, and over much longer time periods. More recent performance has benefited from a repositioning of the portfolio at the beginning of 2016, which included increasing the materials exposure. Total annual distributions have remained stable for the last six years, but the manager is hopeful that annual dividends can increase in the future. CGI has a dividend yield of 3.4% (including a 4c special dividend).
